Sharing Association Number between Business Partners
To be able to give different business partners as e.g. Customers and Suppliers, the same association number, it is necessary to register object properties related to the LU (Logical Unit) PartyType. During installation of IFS Cloud the necessary basic data for object properties will be installed.
Note: It is not possible to add Object Property information such as Object LU, Object Key and Property Name from the IFS Cloud. The mentioned values are highly business logic dependent. The Property Value can however be modified from the client.
Some guidelines how to add support for new party types is presented below,
- Create a new INS file or used an existing one, e.g. EnterpAppsrvDefinitions.ins in component ENTERP.
- Use one of the following public methods in package
Set_Value(object_lu_, object_key_, property_name_, property_value_)
Add_Value(object_lu_, object_key_, property_name_, property_value_)
Set_Valuemethod creates a new property if not existing, else it will override the existing property value.
Add_Valuemethod creates a new property if not existing, else it adds the property value to the property list separating the values with a comma.
About the method parameters,
object_lu_parameter should be defined as the string
object_key_parameter must be the party type that the property should be defined for.
property_name_parameter must be defined as the string
property_value_parameter holds the property values that in this case (for
property_name='GROUPS') is a comma separated list of groups names, where each group name list is created by defining a string according to
SUBSTR(<party_type1>,1,4) || '_' || SUBSTR(<party_type2>,1,4)...where
<party_type1>='CUSTOMER'means the first 4 characters, i.e.
'CUST'The only exception is the party type
CUSTOMSthat can be defined with the full name.
The following example enables the possibility to share association numbers between party types
BEGIN Object_Property_API.Add_Value('PartyType', 'SUPPLIER', 'GROUPS', 'CUST_SUPP' ); Object_Property_API.Add_Value('PartyType', 'CUSTOMER', 'GROUPS', 'CUST_SUPP' ); END; /
Install the INS file depending on deployment model (Cloud or Remote) used.
- Check the results in the Application Base Setup / System Setup / System Definitions / Object Properties page.
